131 - 5 Henry and two wives

We can’t find Henry in 1880 census, but:

1885 census, we find Henry living with Arvilla (Templeton), though we can’t find a marriage. This is Arkansas City in Kansas, where we know Henry was around that time. It is the right age, occupation and place, so must be Henry from Ohio and Germany.

 When we look at the children listed, it is not clear which ones are Henry’s:

Henry Gotts & Linda Gould

There is a record of the marriage of a Henry Gotts to Linda Gould on 1 Sept 1874 by licence in Cuyahoga, so presumably in East Cleveland. The name on the application and the marriage cert is for Linda, but the margin note says Louisa!

There is no other information about Linda, except a second marriage as Linda Gotts in 1880 to Mark Burner. There are no other Linda Gottses, nor records of a Linda, so we can only presume that Linda believes her husband to be dead or decides to portray him as such.
